Jun 22, 2010 - On our way home
Well here it is, the end of our whirlwind trip of the west. We could have certainly extended this visit into two weeks, maybe even two months! It certainly makes Rick and I seriously think about putting the for sale sign out and packing it up and taking it on the road once we retire! There is just soo much out there to see!

Reservations are made in SD, Grand Tetons and 1 night of our 3 night stay in Yellowstone. Only 1 night??? we can't get the other two reserved...they are full! Well at least the first night is...Jump to full entry
